About a girl

E.S. Conway 1985 (United Kingdom)



Let me tell you about a girl,
Born without her voice,
Trapped inside the lie,
She told without a choice.

Many struggles tore her soul,
As the years stripped her bare,
Loneliness had taken hold,
She learned how not to care.

As life went on there came a point,
Where a life alone was certain,
Friends had come and gone away,
So she faced her final curtain.

Scared and broken, home she ran,
Into the arms of her loving mum,
Trying hard to convince herself,
Life is even worse for some...
